Vaikunta Chaturdashi is observed on Kartik Shukla Chaturdasi, the fourteenth day in Shukla paksha during Kartik month. In 2022, Vaikunth Chaturdashi date is November 6.
This festival is dedicated to Lord Sri Maha Vishnu, who performed Puja to Lord Shiva on this day. As per the legend or story of Vaikunt Chanturdasi, Vishnu visited the holy city of Varanasi to perform Shiva Puja.
Lord Vishnu wanted to offer 1000 flowers to Shiva. In order to test Vishnus bhakti, Lord Shiva hid one flower. Lord Vishnu recognized that one flower is missing and offered his eye as flower to Lord Shiva. Shiva pleased with the utmost devotion of Vishnu and presented him the Sudarshan, the divine disc.
